The Event

The anniversary 15th annual Mystic Sk8 Cup 2008 is again a part of the World Cup Skateboarding (WCS) contest series. This event is traditionally one of the most popular summer holiday events in Prague.

From Friday 4th until Sunday 6th of July, the world’s top riders will compete for the record prize money of $50.000 in three main contests – street, vert and bowl. The youngest and at the same time a very attractive part is the bowl contest, for which the obstacle was designed by skateboarding legends Dave Duncan and Brian Patch. After the final, all competitions will culminate in the popular best trick contest.

The streetstyle course including spectator seating are covered by a huge mobile roofing system and since last year, thanks to support of the City of Prague and the mayor, Mr. Pavel Bem, the pool has a roofing system as well.

The contest will also be open to girls, who will compete for $2.500 in the streetstyle contest and in vert and bowl exhibitions.

As every year, our first priority is the satisfaction of our riders. The contest is very popular with visitors too – every year we have over 10000 of them. As every year, we are building a brand new skatepark according to the current trends so that not only the riders are motivated to performances that extend the limits of skateboarding but also to have a more impartial contest.

Mystic Sk8 Cup will again host the best riders of current skateboarding in all three contests. As in past years, we expect to greet approximately 200 professional riders from cca 25 countries, including the world’s best from USA, Brazil, Australia and Europe.

The contest is managed according to the rules of the World Cup Skateboarding office, which compiles the results and supplies the judges.

This year, we will again present our rich schedule of supporting events which will include live music performances, DJs, Subkultura art exhibition, grafitti wall, video projections of skateboarding films and various workshops. For the musit, we can mention the bands Vladimir 518, Sunshine, Apple Juice, Chilla Killerz, Czech Beatbox Allstarts, DJs Loutka, Robot, Trafik, Kuba Soulcheck and others.

An integral part of the event are our spectators and supporters, both local and from all over the world, who thanks to their perfect understanding of skateboarding create our unique atmosphere.

On Saturday and Sunday, the event will be broadcasted live on-line on the official webpage www.mysticsk8cup.cz, where you can find further information including schedules and ticket sales.
